Fintan Whelan is an Irish contemporary artist whose method of painting is characterized by an immediacy of process and an urgency of vision, which he has been developing over the years. His technique, despite the appearance of serendipity, involves constant assessment, measurement, and exploration of pigments and their configurations, combined with varnishes, oils, and a variety of materials. Whelan creates abstract worlds, prompting a multitude of intellectual and emotional responses from his viewers. Born in Dublin, the artist currently lives and works between Germany and Ireland.
